Gareth Gates's new venture is a far cry from being a Pop Star. After 15 very successful years, he has now taken on a new venture. Read on to find out more about it.

Gareth Gates introduces Cuppanut

Once upon a time, a seventeen year old boy realised his dream to become a Pop Star. He became the youngest person to have a number one hit, and in the course of just twelve months, he had three more number ones. He toured Asia and won numerous awards, and Garethmania was born. His name is Gareth Gates

The fact that he had a bad stammer did not hold him back, and after a while he took some time out from his career to study and pass exams to become a Speech Coach for the McGuire Programme, which had helped him so much with his stammer.. His aim was to help others like himself, to give something back, and to raise awareness of stammering.

Because he was so well known, his example encouraged others to seek help, and he continues today , to combine his involvement with the Mc Guire Programme with his flourishing career.

What came Next

In 2008,Gareth was given the opportunity to compete in Dancing on Ice, with a professional skater as a partner, he soon found himself gaining in confidence, and able to lift his partner. He went as far as the semi finals, proving just how much he had embraced learning to skate.

In 2014 Dancing on Ice returned for the last time, and Gareth was amongst some of the celebrities who were invited back for the last series. He was also the last of the skaters, who were not previous champions, to be eliminated.

And After that

Whilst he was on our tv screens every week competing on the ice, both Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Cameron Mackintosh noticed how well received he was by the public, and afterwards he was offered the role of Joseph in] Joseph and the Amazing technicolour Dreamcoat. After that Marius in Les Mis, Then Legally Blonde, and Loserville followed.

He also took part in touring productions of Mad about The Musicals, and From Broadway to West End, and he has continued to perform gigs around the country. Gareth has also participated in many charity events, as well as singing, he has taken on the challenges of golf and football, alongside other well known celebrities.

Then came a huge setback

Singing means everything to Gareth, when his stammer is at its worst, it gives him a voice. But last year his voice suddenly seemed to be struggling, and after investigation, it was found he had ruptured a vocal chord. He had to take time out to have an operation, then have vocal massage and treatment in order for his voice to recover. For a month all he could do was whisper, but he was remained brave and focused,

This was devastating for him, but he was determined to beat this latest challenge, so he decided to do all he could to help his own recovery. He adopted a really healthy lifestyle, eating the right foods, and exercising to keep himself trim.

It was at that time, an idea came to him. He already knew the benefits of coconut, so as he cannot drink coffee or orange juice, because he is allergic to them, he thought why not invent a tea without caffeine, so he thought up a plan. The result is Cuppanut, which is bursting with health giving properties, and only natural ingredients. I have tried the coconut one, and also the cranberry and coconut too, if you have a sensitive stomach, they are particularly good, as well as tasting very nice. I have yet to try The ginger and tumeric one.

Gareth recently signed a deal with Holland and Barrett to stock Cuppanut in their shops around the country, and he is currently touring around the shops to promote it. So now we Have Gareth Gates, business entrepeneur, to add to his many other talents. I would like to wish him well with his new venture. It's a great idea, and the tea is amazing, but don't take my word for it, try it for yourself.
